During any family law matter, it is important to have an experienced advocate on your side to assist with your case. Family law issues can be extremely complicated, and you should not have to handle a divorce, custody, or maintenance matter on your own. A Skokie family law attorney can assist with any family law matter you are facing. Do not hesitate to reach out to an advocate at Arami Law to learn more about how we can assist you.
In Illinois, most family law matters are governed by the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA). At Arami Law, we handle a wide variety of family law cases, including but not limited to the following:
While nobody who is currently planning a wedding wants to think about the possibility of divorce, it is extremely important for all couples to consider the benefits of a premarital agreement. Under the Illinois Uniform Premarital Agreement Act, premarital or prenuptial agreements can help to clarify issues of property, as well as maintenance issues in the event of divorce. There are certain things that can never be negotiated through a premarital agreement, such as child support.
If you are in the process of considering divorce, it is also important to begin planning for the distribution of marital property. A Skokie divorce attorney can discuss the importance of making a list of all assets and debts of the marriage to ensure that all property is taken into account by the court. Your lawyer can also discuss options for a postnuptial agreement through which you and your spouse agree to certain terms after the divorce.
Under Illinois law, parents are no longer awarded child custody. Instead, the court allocates parenting time and parental responsibilities when the parents cannot come to an agreement through a parenting plan. To learn more about how the court allocates parenting time and parental responsibilities, you should speak with a family law attorney in Skokie.
If you have questions about drafting a premarital agreement, filing for divorce, or handling issues of parental responsibilities and parenting time, you should discuss your case with a Skokie family lawyer as soon as possible. The dedicated advocates at Arami Law can help with your family law matter. Contact us today to learn more about the services we provide to clients in Skokie.

I highly recommend Arami Law to anyone needing a divorce attorney.
I interviewed almost a dozen attorneys before settling on Kourosh and his team at Arami Law. Every attorney a met with immediately jumped to how much they could get for me, boasting about how they could help me do X or Y to my soon to be former spouse with their legal prowess. Instead, when I met with Kourosh, he asked me what happened and how I wanted to handle my divorce, which was, admittedly, unconventional in the sense that I wanted to do what would let me sleep well at night which was much less than what I could...
Kourosh Arami was there when I needed him. He fought hard to make sure that I was treated fairly and always took time to explain what was going on and why. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer that will fight for you.
